    Default Face reconstruction of King " Robert The Bruce " ( Scottish national hero)

    His vengeance story and war of Independence is quite interesting at least in the movies. Bruce was deposed and dishonored by King of Edward's I army and forced to flee. But his wife and daughters were imprisoned and all three of his brothers were brutally executed. He later came back and defeated an large army from kingdom of England under Edward II, and made Scotland Independent from English rule, he also freed Ireland from English rule, Invaded northern England and captured and raided it's territories. He was also cruel in many ways but Scotland remembers him as "Good King Robert" and an national hero. Bruce's final legacy was to confirm "Scotland as separate and distinct, not just as a kingdom but as a community, a people and ultimately a nation.". However his legacy is also trouble to the union of Great Britain & Scotland and can easily stirs up Scottish nationalist sentiments anytime.

    "
    His paternal ancestors were of Scoto-Norman heritage (originating in Brix, Manche, Normandy), and his maternal of Franco-Gaelic.[3] He became one of Scotland's greatest kings, as well as one of the most famous warriors of his generation, eventually leading Scotland during the Wars of Scottish Independence against the Kingdom of England. He claimed the Scottish throne as a fourth great-grandson of David I, and fought successfully during his reign to regain Scotland's place as an independent nation. Today in Scotland, Bruce is remembered as a national hero. "

    For those interesting in the "Independence of Scottish war"

    than watch the movie "Braveheart" which is an story about Robert the Bruce. Personally this is one of the greatest movies of all time in my opinion, but I saw it ages and ages ago.

    One of the most funny quote of all time " They may take our wives, but they'll never take our freedom " Lol

    Death

    " King Robert is buried in Dunfermline Abbey. Robert died on 7 June 1329, at the Manor of Cardross, near Dumbarton[28] He had suffered for some years from what some contemporary accounts describe as an "unclean ailment". The traditional view is that this was leprosy, but this was not mentioned in contemporary accounts, and is now disputed with syphilis, psoriasis[citation needed], motor neurone disease and a series of strokes all proposed as possible alternatives.[29] "

    He ain't no pretty boy that's for sure.
